Located along Churchill Road, Reepham Hotel serves a good range of pub food along with a few more "upmarket" dishes such as Chimichurri Marinated Pork Cutlet. In addition to their main menu, they also offer a few daily specials which are displayed on a board near the counter where you place your order.
As its name suggests, Reepham's Herb & Parmesan Burger is a bit different from normal schnitzel burgers in that the crumb includes herb and grated Parmesan cheese in it. The coating helped to give the chicken a distinct savoury flavour with the bacon, smoked cheddar cheese and seeded mustard aioli complementing it well. It came with a serving of chips which was fried to golden brown with fluffy interiors.

With Chicken Schnitzel being one of the main dishes served at pubs, we decided to order it to have a taste. As expected, the chicken schnitzel had a crisp coating that contrasts well with the perfectly cooked flesh. The pepper sauce we chose to top the schnitzel had a strong peppery flavour from the peppercorns in the sauce. Other choices for the sauce are gravy, mushroom, Diane, red wine jus and garlic cream.

When ordering their Fish & Chips you are given the choice of having grilled, battered or crumbed fish. The grilled fish was tender and subtly flavoured by the herbs while the batter coating was crisp with the fish having a meatier texture compared to the grilled fish. Both came with lemon wedges that can be squeezed over the fish and tartare sauce to dip it in. There is also the choice to replace the chips with sweet potato fries which was cooked just right with the slightly sweet taste that is expected from sweet potato.

Reepham Hotel has a few deals on weekdays, with your choice of schnitzel, curry, roast of the day or Fish & Chips at a reduced price from Mondays to Thursdays and seniors get to enjoy a few dishes for only $9.90 on weekdays. Ambience of the place was very cosy with a bit of rustic charm and a decent amount of off-street parking is available in the carpark in front of the hotel.
